Wisconsin and Iowa have one of the more storied football histories in the Big Ten, and the teams have played some memorable affairs in recent seasons.
Wisconsin defeated Iowa 17-9 last season in Iowa City for the Heartland Trophy in a game that Badgers running back Corey Clement rushed for 134 yards with a touchdown. It marked a crucial victory for Wisconsin, helping put the Badgers on a path toward winning the Big Ten West. Wisconsin had lost consecutive games against Michigan and Ohio State but ran the table over its final six regular-season games to win the West.
In the game, the Badgers employed a two-quarterback system with Alex Hornibrook and Bart Houston. Hornibrook completed 11 of 19 passes for 197 yards, and Houston completed 4 of 6 passes for 59 yards, which included a touchdown to tight end Troy Fumagalli.
Wisconsin’s defense allowed only 236 yards on 60 plays and held Iowa without a touchdown for the first time all season. Hawkeyes quarterback C.J. Beathard threw for 153 yards.
The last time Iowa ventured to Camp Randall Stadium occurred in 2015, when the Hawkeyes earned a hard-fought 10-6 victory. That victory helped pave the way for Iowa’s magical 12-0 regular season.
Iowa running back Jordan Canzeri rushed for 125 yards, and the Hawkeyes took advantage of four turnovers by Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave. The Hawkeyes won despite not scoring in the second half for the first time since 2007.
Stave lost two fumbles, including a critical turnover midway through the fourth quarter at the Iowa 1-yard line. He tripped over an offensive lineman’s foot while attempting to hand the ball off to tailback Taiwan Deal. Wisconsin had one more drive to try to win the game and reached the Iowa 16-yard line. But Stave’s fourth-down pass to Fumagalli was incomplete with 36 seconds remaining. Wisconsin’s rushing attack struggled during that matchup. Deal rushed for 59 yards, and tailback Dare Ogunobwale rushed for 28 yards. In total, the Badgers finished with 86 rushing yards.
This season, Iowa is coming off a huge 55-24 victory that boosted the Hawkeyes to No. 20 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. For Wisconsin, which is ranked No. 8 in the poll, it provides an opportunity to earn a crucial win that will enhance the Badgers’ strength of schedule.
Badgers running back Jonathan Taylor collected his school-record fifth Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor after rushing for 183 yards with a touchdown against Indiana last Saturday. Taylor leads the Big Ten in rushing and ranks No. 4 nationally at 152.0 yards per game. He also has scored a league-high 12 rushing touchdowns.
Wisconsin’s defense ranks No. 4 nationally in scoring defense, allowing 13.3 points per game, and is No. 5 in total defense (267.8 yards per game). Wisconsin leads the Big Ten with 14 interceptions this season. Iowa is second in the conference with 13 interceptions, led by defensive back Josh Jackson’s 5 interceptions. He picked off Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett 3 times last week.
Wisconsin leads the all-time series against Iowa 45-43-2.
